In 2013, Santa Fe’s Water Division became aware that its drive-by meter reading system was failing. Working with Badger Meter, the city’s Water Division chose to implement the BEACON® Advanced Metering Analytics (AMA) managed solution with ORION® Cellular endpoints, as well as E-Series® Ultrasonic meters.

  4. Tackling Questions On Technology’s Impact In Drug Development And Clinical Research: Part 2

    A Q&A with World Wide Clinical Trials, Dr. Murphy discusses technology’s impact on the clinical trial processes and addresses questions on the minds of those working in drug development and clinical research.

  5. Innovative Technologies For Stormwater And Combined Sewer Management

    Stormwater flows have historically been considered as harmless by the general public and system designers. Recent studies have shown that these flows cannot be dismissed as easily. Chebbo (1992), Marsalek (1997) and Valiron (1992) have shown that stormwater is a source of diffuse pollution with a high source of suspended solids (SS), adsorbed hydrocarbons (HC), nutrient loads (N, P, etc.) and heavy metals (Pb, Cr, etc.), which ultimately influence the quality of the receiving body of water.

  6. How One Plant Found Great Service Through Turbidity Analyzers

    The nearly 16,000 people in Calhoun, GA, rely on two drinking water treatment facilities — one that pulls its water from a river and another that pulls from groundwater — that process about 9 MGD. The turbidity of the river’s water can fluctuate dramatically, so the operators rely on the surface water treatment plant’s turbidity analyzers to ensure that they are serving the population as they should.

  7. From RSPA INSPIRE: Many Resellers Devoid Of Ownership, Leadership Abilities

    A frequent complaint I’ve heard from channel vendors — including a few times this week at the RSPA INSPIRE Thought Leadership Summit in Puerto Rico — is that many resellers lack fundamental business management knowledge and skills. For example, when talking about the need to shift to the as-a-Service business model, the owner of the small reseller business isn’t familiar with business models in general and doesn’t track his company’s financial performance.

  8. Sunlight-Blocking Covers Control Algae, Reduce Operational Costs At California Utility

    ​The Santa Clara Valley Water District (the District) manages an integrated water resources system that includes the supply of clean, safe water, flood protection, and stewardship of streams on behalf of Santa Clara County's 1.8 million residents. The district effectively manages 10 dams and surface water reservoirs, three water treatment plants, an advanced recycled water purification center, a state-of-the-art water quality laboratory, nearly 400 acres (162 hectares) of groundwater recharge ponds, and more than 275 miles (443 km) of streams.

  10. High-Capacity Filtration Plus Ultraviolet Disinfection For Cooling Towers Means More “Uptime” For Server Farms

    Most of us use computers or smartphones on a daily basis. But we usually don’t know what goes on behind the scenes — the technology that allows us to use cloud computing or even Google search. And we certainly aren’t aware of the infrastructure needed to support that technology — like cooling towers.
